    Goodwill Industries pays some workers less-than-starvation wages

    Somebody just sent me this link. I never realized that Goodwill is allowed to pay less than minimum wages to their workers - and certainly not wages as low as 22 cents per hour. Is this the United States...or is this Haiti? http://www.nbcnews.com/video/rock-ce...80748#52280748

    Perhaps the employees can survive by doing all their shopping at the Goodwill Store.

    We need to see more of these exposures of corporations paying slave labour rates.

    We do need limitations on the salaries of managers of tax exempt, non religious charities. While the salaries of the disabled workers seem outrageously low, one would need to know how profitable the work is. Anyone with a wage that low cannot be capable of doing much and business probably cannot pay more. It is not expected that the disabled people will live on that alone. They must all getting some form of disability and or welfare. In other words, they either take that wage for some spending money, or nothing at all. Again the top salaries should be limited.

    They can't do much with that spending money. If the slave has to get to the Goodwill by bus, that alone could eat up eight to ten hours of wages.

    I did find the top salaries to be rather opulent and excessive, but that wasn't my issue this time.

    It burns me enough that waitpeople in restaurants are often paid around $2 or $2.50 per hour.
